toronto-elaineSomething Unique: I attended Highland as a teenager and came over several years later as an ESL teacher when South High closed. I my classroom at the time was a closet by Mr. Johnson's wood shop.  I still live very close by.

Attended: University of Utah, BYU-Hawaii, Weber State University

I can't believe that I have taught for almost 30 years! I started with ESL, then taught career exploration and internships, which I loved beyond measure! After that I spent about 9 years supervising Career & Technical Ed teachers and programs both at HHS and the SLC District Career & Technology Center. Now I'm back at Highland teaching German and currently English Language Development. I love teaching at Highland!! I also love my kids, my pup-dogs, oceans, mountains, and deserts and traveling all over the globe.
